Abstract
Optical Command and Beamrider activities at Redstone Arsenal are described. Historical results including actual flight tests, along with present effort and future plans are described. Several iterations of early development hardware are shown and discussed. Potential system applications and opportunities for integrated optics/large scale integrated circuit application are explored.
